All those beach hikes, trail walking and amusement park treks with your arms full and not watching where you are going, tend to end up in one result- some sort of booboo, that will probably leave a scar.
And right at swim suit/short season!
What's a Mom to do?
ScarAway Flex Long Sheets: Using their new Flexisil technology, these sheets helps to help shrink, flatten, and fade longer scars that may result from C-sections, tummy tucks, orthopedic procedures or other surgeries, as well as injuries and burns. With their superior stretching and adhesion capabilities, ScarAway Flex Long Sheets are ideal for scars located on or near joints and complement an active lifestyle. Measuring 1.5 x 7”, they deliver slight direct pressure, and mimic the natural barrier function of healthy skin, diminishing the scar’s appearance and restoring skin to a more natural texture and color. Now that is something we can all love during swimsuit season!
In fact, research suggests that silicone acts to hydrate scar tissue, which in turn works to soften the scar, reducing its development and causing it to fade away. ScarAway also protects your delicate scar area and helps relieve the itching, burning and pain that often accompany scar (no you weren't imagining those symptoms!). You wear the sheets for up to 12 hours a day, and you can start using them 1-2 weeks post surgery! Scars will immediately feel softer and should fade out within 4 weeks, or so.You get a two month supply of the sheets for $29.99 (6 sheets). I didn't have a chance to try these sheets out, as I don't have any long enough scars for them, but a friend started using them this week and swears her scar is already faded over halfway into her natural skin tone!
ScarAway Daily Discs: These discs use the same advanced patented silicone technology as their larger sheet counterparts, but come in a petite, round format that is perfect for smaller scars (such as those that result from biopsies, mole removal, and acne blemishes). They measure 1.375” in diameter and are ideal for scars one inch or less in diameter. They are easy to apply and virtually invisible when on! I was able to try these out on an old skateboarding scar that is right in the middle of my knee, and pretty obvious in it's whiteness, as you can see in the before photo below!
You can see how much it has faded in ONLY 5 days! I am really impressed and am glad I have these discs on hand, in case Miss Grace gets any booboos, because I'd hate for her to have scars that stand out, as much as mine on my knee! You get a one month supply of 30 discs for $24.99.
I love these discs! If they can fade out a scar that is this old, just think what they can do for your kids' recent scars! Check out the ScarAway website to find a retailer near you! They are sold at CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and Walmart among other stores!
